Words

I had a yoga studio – a great space for people to practice together. We practiced breathing, moving, supporting and maybe growing together as like minded people who knew inspiration was a great fuel for fire. To help that happen, I had stenciled words on all the studio walls, with the help of a dear friend. These words were there to be glanced at whenever the eyes would wonder off the yoga mat, and to help the student remember their optimum self.

One thought on “Words

    Love the images the above words bring about and miss hearing these words if they are not included in a yoga class. In fact, I think I have become overly attached to many of these words and am trying to take a more descriptive approach to my choice of words “off the mat”. Thank you for writing about the power of words in your blog!
